Located in the heart of The Sacred Valley, Peru, this program offers a powerful place to tap into the wisdom of the land, the ancient culture and the deep inner knowing of our own hearts. This land is said to be one of the most powerful energetic centers of the world. We feel its strength and we witness this deep connection to spirit in the land, the people and the ancient way of living. In this program we find a harmonious and symbiotic blend of ancient indigenous wisdom and yogic teachings to guide us on this path.
We will find a deep connection to nature as we explore the healing modalities of Peru. We experience the medicine of this land through Despacho ceremony, cleansing plant baths, purifying temescal ceremony, heart-opening cacao ceremony, traditional coca leaf reading and sound and shamanic healings throughout, with optional shamanic ceremonies offered on days off. These rituals facilitate personal transformation and healing and will leave you feeling cleansed and empowered.
The energy of Peru is one of magic, mystery and awakening. We invite you to embark upon this powerful journey with us as we explore the mysteries of our own heart, guided by the Peruvian Medicine Wheel, which allows us to peel away the layers and awaken to our soul’s purpose. Insights, breakthroughs and revelations abound supported by this magical land.
